Sports team success in AoC regionals

It’s been a busy yet successful end of term for Winstanley College’s sports teams competing in the AOC Sport Regionals.

Women’s Volleyball won their regional competition with a strongly fought, high quality contest, defeating a talented Xaverian College side 2 sets to 1. They are now through to the national championships.

Other highlights included two men’s badminton students (Sam Wells and Josh Mo) and cross country runner, Lewis Royle, qualifying for the national championships.

College sport enrichment officer, Ben Rutherford, who has travelled to regionals with the sports teams said: “Each and every student has done superbly well. The girls (in volleyball) did fantastically, especially considering they lost to Xaverian in the group stage.

“They showed great character and played some outstanding volleyball in the final. It was a pleasure to watch and I can’t wait to see how they get on in Nottingham for the Nationals.

“Sam and Josh did great making it two years in a row qualifying for badminton, and Lewis got a very strong time in the cross country”.
